Public Memory Vinyl, CD & tapes by Public Memory at Norman Records
The sophomore LP from Public Memory arrives courtesy of Felte (Soviet Soviet, Autobahn). Demolition is a brooding and abrasive listen that recalls that period in the '90s when hip-hop started morphing into all sorts of strange new styles. Trip-hop, Krautrock and the paranoid plunderphonics of early DJ Shadow all exert a strong influence on these eight tunes.

Public Memory make a shuffling kind of music out of slithering bass tones, slow-swaggering drum machines and Thom Yorkie vocals, all put through a dubbed-up and tripped-out production style. Veil Of Memory is a three track EP that sonically stands in between last year’s debut album and their forthcoming 2017 follow-up. 12” on Felte.
Very hard to pin down vocal electronica from Public Memory. On Wuthering Drum abrasive electronic textures, hip-hop drums and neoclassical piano are all held together by Robert Toher’s melancholic vocals and lyrics of alienation. A thoughtful and minimal record with a trip-hop sensibility. CD and vinyl LP on Felte.
